Altorf, Hannah Marije – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
This article starts from the observation that Socratic dialogues in the Nelson-Heckmann tradition can create a sense of belonging or community among participants.

Erden, Yasemin J. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019

Pawlett-Jackson, Sarah P. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
In this paper, I examine some of the presuppositions that underpin the practice and interpretation of multi-person dialogue -- that is, in contexts involving more than two interlocutors -- with particular thought for the university seminar. I outline the 'dialogical phenomenology' of Beata Stawarska as useful on this count; however, I argue that…

Vasterling, Veronica – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
Habermas and Arendt defend two contrasting accounts of discussion. While both accounts acknowledge the importance of knowledge as basis of discussion, Habermas emphasizes the aim of reasoned agreement and Arendt focuses on plural interpretative perspectives. I will explore the tension between the two accounts in order to clarify the phenomenon of…

Carter, Susan; Gunn, Vicky – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
Doctoral learning entails transition from experienced student to stance-defending researcher, exposed to international critique: a disorientation and reorientation into a new identity. Arts and Humanities candidates typically navigate these moves without much of a map, choosing their own topics, avoiding the more externally defined approach…
